The original Jupiter’s Claim set from Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror movie, Nope, will be featured as part of the world-famous Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. It will become a permanent attraction from July 22, which coincides with the theatrical release of the movie.
The fictional Jupiter’s Claim is a family theme park based on the California Gold Rush. In the movie it is owned by former child star, Ricky “Jupe” Park. The theme park becomes a significant location as the characters “investigate mysterious, unexplained phenomena, leading them toward increasing danger and terrifying consequences.”
The set was created by Production Designer Ruth DeJong. It was disassembled post-production so that it could be transported and reconstructed in its final resting place at Universal Studios Hollywood. The set is complete with original props and details from the movie. It takes its place alongside other memorable sets from movies such as Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds, Psycho and Back to the Future.
“I remember visiting Universal Studios when I was 12 years old and being mesmerized. That experience reinforced my passion and drive to someday join in on the meta-magic of ‘backlot life.’ Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to direct three movies for Universal,” said Jordan Peele. “It is a privilege to honor these collaborations with my studio partners, crew members and cast, and to be able to share Jupiter’s Claim with fans.”
Nope was written, directed and produced by Peele and stars Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Keke Palmer (Hustlers) and Steven Yeun (Minari). On July 22, you will be able to celebrate the opening weekend by watching the movie at the Universal Cinema at Universal Citywalk and then head over to the Studio Tour to see where it was filmed!
